I created this thread so that everyone who has FINISHED the book can discuss it, without spoiling it for those of are still reading. If you haven't finished the book I wouldn't bother reading further if you don't want it ruined for you. Differing from the "How much have you read?" thread, here you can share your thoughts on the entire book (or books), the endings, and such. Let the discussions begin!

I personally am not yet sure what I make of the ending. I didn't like Eragon's attitude towards the end. I got fed up with him refusing to acknowledge a god (or a higher power), and walking around telling people he was "too powerful". It's almost like he thinks he's a god, which I think is just lame. He's too arrogant. I also thought he should have aloud Sloan to talk to his daughter. Restoring vision just seems like a great torture. Seeing someone you love and yet can't talk to. Ouch! I wish the Paolini had elaborated more on who Angela really was too (maybe a god?).

There was also that woman with the scars on her wrists (maybe Selina?) with her children. The first time she popped up was in Brisinger (in the camp), and then again in the battle of Uru'Baen. She gave Roran the spear. In Brisinger when Eragon sees them he says there is a touch of incredible destiny about them. You never learn what that is...drives me crazy! Do you guys think Paolini is going to write more stories about Alagaesia?

Yes I'm a christian. And I agree that the book was rather unsatisfying. Well written, but unsatisfying.

It says in the Acknowledgements that he was going to write another book set in Alagaesia, but he didn't know when or what he would write about. I agree in the Acknowledgements that Angela (my favorite character along with Solembum) would be lame when fully explained, but the ending definitely can make a nice prologue for any fan fiction.

I was not impressed with the ending at all. it was quite unhappy, because Eragon had to leave Alagaesia. overall, the book was 4.7/5, and only bad part was the ending and that world-view isa little wrong but otherwise, it was great!

Well CP said that he is writing an epilouge and has 7 more stories set in alagaesia 2 of them together could make a potential book 5 and that eragona nd arya have forever to be togaether eventually since they both can visit each other with dragons Remember the elf queen can step down

really? i never knew CP would write another book. That makes more sense then because the ending seemed a little incomplete.
